In a nutshell
A brand new collection of ethnic samples from Pandit Dinesh - much more than percussion!
About the producer
Pandit Dinesh, the godfather of the British Asian Musical Movement, brings you an amazing new sample collection featuring hundreds of his performances. Together with Stephen Luscome & Asha Bhosle is one third of the West India Company. His other credits include Osibisa, Monsoon, Caron Wheeler, Annie Lennox, Blancmange, Boy George, Trevor Horn, George Fenton, Jah Wobble, Riyuchi Sakamoto and many more!
Playing a style of percussion which combines Indian, African, Latin & Pop, Dinesh's instrumental 'batterie de cuisine' includes tabla, congas, madal, duggi, chenda, timbales, dhol, dholak and duff to name but a few.
A unique resource created by a unique talent.
Hundreds of specially recorded loops. Solo and emsemble percussion, instrument licks, atmospheres and vocals!
WAV files are the simpliest and most widely compatible sound files for use with computers and some hardware samplers. If you can't find a 'cleverer' format you can utilise then this might be the best option. You should find any loop content is edited to loop smoothly too which will save you a lot of time versus sampling yourself from audio CDs!
PRODUCT SPECIFIC - We managed to squeeze the whole collection onto this CD-ROM! There are 483 samples in total, in all 483 megs of data. NB: This CD-ROM includes a few samples that require additional licensing prior to any commercial usage. This only applies to a few longer performances and atmospheres.
